My camera is as dead as can be. It's beyond repair and I find it annoying (to say the least) that so many things today are not repairable — or that it is more expensive to get it repaired than to buy a new camera — or what happens to be broken.
So I dug ot my old camera and gave it artificial respiration and now I'm at least able to take pictures, even if they are not very good.

I've plenty of berries in the freezer now, as we got a bumper crop of berries this summer.

We managed to fit in our yearly picnic, by the river, one of the last warmish days in August. Just a few days before my friend had to return to London.

  1. Your pictures always display such beauty and tranquility, em. It is good to see that you are back in action.

    My camera, too, is beyond repair although only a few years old. I do not like the current attitude that things should be thrown away and new ones purchased. I have a friend who was a research scientist; for a short period, he worked for ICI and the sole purpose of his role was to find ways of making flaws in objects that would otherwise last indefinitely. He soon resigned because he found it such a terrible task. Now I think of the people inventing ways of making our cameras fail beyond repair!

    Enjoy using your old camera and making us happy with your pictures.

  2. Maureen,
    What an odd job your friend had!
    It makes me think of something I heard about silk stockings. Already at that time when you wore silk stockings (with a seam) they realized that if they were of too good quality, they didn't sell enough of them. So, although they knew how to make stockings that lasted, they didn't.
